Dear Drew, Sue and Family, I am so sorry for your loss and have donated to Ladies of Charity in lieu of flowers so I know Mom and Aunt Becky loved that! You are all in my thoughts and prayers and I hate that I cannot be there for you at this difficult time. Hugs and kisses and hope to see you when I visit in November for Thanksgiving.

With Love,
Cathy and Shane Benjamson and Kristen and Tom Snell

Mrs. Becky Doyle was such an important part of my life. I also graduated from St. Thomas School of Nursing & while a student, I was introduced to Becky. She immediately became my role model. I learned all that is right about being a nurse from her. She was everything I wanted to be. Then when I graduated, I was blessed to have Becky as my first head nurse. In my 45 plus yrs as a nurse at St. Thomas, I just hope I made her proud. I certainly had the best mentor anyone could ever have. May eternal rest be with you, sweet Becky Doyle.
